ASUS is on a roll today, unveiling not only the 7 inch MeMo tablet, but also a new version of the quad core Prime slate: ASUS Transformer Prime TF700T. This new device brings an enhanced 1920 x 1200 resolution, a new design that solves GPS problems and… that’s about it. This means that we now have two tablets with 1080p resolutions at CES, after the Iconia Tab A700 unveiling from Acer.

The new Transformer Prime version comes with the Super IPS+ feature that was impressive ont he first model and another upgrade is the rear cover design of the device. This one has been tweaked for better GPS WiFi and Bluetooth performance, that seemed lackluster on the first ASUS quad core slate. I guess that early adopters of the Tegra 3 tablet are now very frustrated about the debut of the upgraded TF700T. Android 4.0.1 is the OS of choice for this new Prime and its price tag will be around $599 to $699, in the 32GB or 64GB versions.

Expect the product to reach US stores in Q2 2012 and compatibility with the first Transformer Prime dock is available, of course. The quad core 1.3GHz processor is kept, as well as the 1GB of RAM and there’s yet another upgrade to notice: the one of the front camera from 1.2 to 2 megapixels.

    Oh, come on Asus, why? Why havent’t you launched this the first place? Now I’ll have to wait, again, 2-3 months at least to be available in stores :((
